▷ The Delaware Turnpike begins at the Maryland state line, where guide signs welcome travelers just before the toll plaza.

Any driver that uses the toll roads in Delaware is expected to pay the toll for that roadway. In Delaware, the tolls are set by the Delaware Department Of Transportation, usually abbreviated, "DelDOT". This rate setting applies to I-95, Delaware's State Route 1 and to U.S. Highway 301, which connects Maryland with the SR 1 toll road.

MISSED TOLL OR WRONG LANE?

Delaware does not accept online toll payments. You must pay with cash or E-ZPass when using the toll roads in America's first state.

If you did not have enough cash, used the wrong lane or have another type of violation, you can pay for the violation online. Make certain you have your violation notice. You will need the violation number to begin the payment process.

If you want to dispute your violation notice, you may use the payment violation page. Simply enter your violation number, then your license plate number and state.

PAYING TOLLS IN DELAWARE

Cash Payment System

The cash payment system speaks for itself. When you pay by cash, you are responsible for having sufficient cash funds to pay for your tolls while driving on Delaware toll roads.

If you are unable to pay your toll, you will receive a ticket for the amount of the unpaid toll, plus an administrative fine.

Delaware E-ZPass

Delaware is part of the E-ZPass system; therefore, you may use an E-ZPass on toll roads in Delaware. Any transponder that displays the E-ZPass or IPass logo will be accepted in Delaware.

E-ZPass Compatibility

If you have an E-ZPass issued in another state, or an IPass issued by Illinois, you may use E-ZPass lanes in Delaware. You will also get the discounted toll rates in Delaware.

Make certain you have sufficient funds on your E-ZPass account to pay for the toll charges you will incur; otherwise, it will count as a toll violation.

VEHICLE CLASSES

Counting Axles

counting axles quick reference

This graphic provides general information about how to count the number of axles on your vehicle. See the information below for detailed information for Delaware.

About Vehicle Classes

The classification system is simple in Delaware. Tolls are calculated based on the number of axles your vehicle has. Any trailers that are towed behind your vehicle will also have the axles counted, so when you count the axles on your vehicle, be certain to add the number of axles on the vehicle and the trailer to get your total.

Motorcycles count as a car, including motorcycles with a sidecar. Motorcycles with a trailer would count two axles for the motorcycle, plus the number of axles on the trailer, to get a total.

Axle Classes

  • 2-Axle class includes a car, van, SUV, motorcycle or pickup truck
  • 3-Axle class includes the axles on the vehicle plus any trailer
  • 4-Axle class includes the axles on the vehicle plus any trailer
  • 5-Axle class includes the axles on the vehicle plus any trailer
  • 6-Axle class includes the axles on the vehicle plus any trailer

In Delaware, there is no class of vehicle higher that the 6-Axle class. If you have seven or more axles, use the 6-Axle Class.
